The County of Warren has established a roadway improvement project on Lake Front Rd.  The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will administer the project to improve the 0.14 mile long segment of roadway which begins at the intersection of Rte. 522 and ends at the intersection with Creek Rd.  Creek Rd. intersection improvements will also be incorporated into the project.  The existing roadway will be reconstructed, drainage improved to include a new structure over Sloan Creek, and re-paved to meet VDOT standards.  Once construction is completed, the improved roadway will be turned over to VDOT for maintenance.  The project is being funded jointly by the community of Lake Front Royal (25%), County of Warren (25%), and VDOT (50%).  At this time, VDOT has not established a firm construction start date.  However, the goal is to complete the project during the summer/fall of 2018.

The Lake Front Royal Sanitary District has contracted with Racey Engineering, PLLC of Luray to develop a comprehensive road & drainage study on the community’s 6.5 mile road system.  Over the next several weeks, Racey’s team will be investigating the current conditions and deficiencies of the existing road and drainage system.  This work will entail field survey work to determine the location of existing road right-of-ways, culverts, and drainage patterns.  You may see your property corners flagged with survey ribbon and/or additional stakes.  This survey work does not mean any type of work is imminent.  The existing paved roadways will be core drilled to determine the depth and type of pavements as well as sub-surface conditions.

Winter weather can be extremely harsh on unpaved roadways within District. Pot holes and muddy conditions can appear almost overnight.  Poor drainage conditions, constant freeze/thaw cycles, and the frequent plowing of snow during each storm adds to the problem.  Until spring arrives and we can perform some heavy machine grading on the roadways, County staff will continue to monitor the unpaved roadways and make temporary repairs as needed by hand filling the worst of the potholes and covering muddy areas with stone.
